We've added a page to overnightstatic.com that posts the last 10 tracks played on Radio XL.. It serves as a quick visual guide as to what's been streaming. It's a small feature but one of many that we'd like to make in the coming weeks and months. These include:
- Developing a pop-up window that will stream the RXL stream from Live365 :: We already have a live stream here on overnightstatic.com where listeners can stream directly and immediately and doesn't require any type of login like the Live365 site. We'd like to make listening even easier by developing a mini-player that will stream RXL.
- Switching the Radio XL stream to our own servers :: We did experiment briefly with running RXL off our own server. We REALLY liked the flexibility and customization it offered. It made live shows much easier as we had complete control over what was streaming and when. The playlist was potentially anything on our hard drives and uploading to Live365 was unnecessary. Our main concern was cost and reliability. Our stream dropped a few times for extended periods. There's still plenty of upside that we'd like to explore further.
If there are any other features that you'd like to see - Please, let us know!!
As always, thank you very much for listening!!
